Super Poker Sunday 06/13: Four Finishers Take Home Six-Figure Payouts

Share this
It was another Sunday that fell in the middle of the summer, which meant the online poker tournaments were competing with the 2010 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Not only were there live tournaments to win inside the Rio Convention Center, but there were parties to attend, friends to see, rays of sunshine to absorb, prop bets to win, and sleep to catch up on. Thus, attendance was still down from its usual year-round numbers as the WSOP rolled on.

A few sites saw small increases in registration, but most tournaments fell short of last week’s numbers, and many of the tournaments provided overlays for players when the websites had to meet their guarantees. The most interesting tournament number of all had to be the PokerStars Sunday Million, though, as it managed to produce 7,309 players, which was the exact same number as the week before. Some poker player must be able to figure out the odds of that happening again!

As far as the top prizes of the week, they went to the usual suspects - PokerStars Sunday Million and Full Tilt Poker $750K Guarantee. The former produced three six-figure winners, as redsfan9 took home $214,804.12 for first place, kiaser grabbed $175,750.88 for second, and tytkto won $120K for third. And the $750K awarded winner SEDOS $132,787.50 for that victory. But all in all, there were millions of dollars awarded to all of the players who cashed in the Sunday majors, and the final table finishes are all detailed below:

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

With the first of the PokerStars Sunday majors on tap with the Warm-Up, it was not a good sign when the registration number dipped by several hundred players. The WSOP tournaments in Las Vegas were definitely taking their toll on some tournaments, and this was one of them. The $200 + $15 buy-in event with the $750K guarantee drew only 3,674 players to the tables, which prompted Stars to invest a bit into the pool in order to make the guarantee. The overlay was a benefit for the 540 players who cashed. The last three players in the tournament came to a chop agreement before playing it out to see hithenose ultimately win for more than $90K.

1st place:    hithenose ($90,559.61)
2nd place:    TommyGunn34 ($89,278.46)
3rd place:    PremiumStud ($87,536.91)
4th place:    SOXFAN83 ($43,125.00)
5th place:    modyla ($31,875.00)
6th place:    verehaga ($24,375.00)
7th place:    turataika ($16,875.00)
8th place:    Aftret ($9,375.00)
9th place:    jackziyang ($6,000.00)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The sign of the downswing was no more apparent than in the Quarter Million, the tournament that provided the absolute best buy on the internet, as a $10 + $1 buy-in guaranteed a $250K prize pool. The tournament this week saw a dip of several thousand players, as only 27,690 players bought in, though that number still surpassed the guarantee and made for a $276,900 prize pool. That money was distributed amongst the top 4,500 finishers, and it was derry155 who ultimately defeated MendaLerenda to grab nearly $25K in prize money.

1st place:    derry155 ($24,939.15)
2nd place:    MendaLerenda ($17,140.11)
3rd place:    akyna007 ($12,460.50)
4th place:    royalduck4 ($9,691.50)
5th place:    oscar236 ($6,922.50)
6th place:    jclan5 ($4,153.50)
7th place:    tielogger ($2,769.00)
8th place:    falcon0089 ($2,076.75)
9th place:    joepfederer ($1,384.50)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
Though the DNG took a hit with its numbers as well, it wasn’t as significant as some of the other events on the PokerStars Sunday schedule. But the $50 + $5 buy-in tournament with the $300K guarantee only found 5,507 interested players this week, which prompted the site to add money to the prize pool to make the guarantee. The overlay was felt by the 810 players who cashed in the event, but it was Ufo_Klonk who ultimately won the tournament by defeating BleedBlue33, and the player took home more than $38K for the accomplishment.

1st place:    Ufo_Klonk ($38,100.00)
2nd place:    BleedBlue33 ($26,850.00)
3rd place:    ZeelandBoy ($17,850.00)
4th place:    dal_elama ($14,700.00)
5th place:    p!erCarL ($11,700.00)
6th place:    MrCashew55 ($8,700.00)
7th place:    psycho0 ($5,850.00)
8th place:    gboro780 ($3,600.00)
9th place:    0uTpLaYeD ($2,100.00)

Sunday Million
This was odd. This week’s Sunday Million drew the *exact* number of entrants as the week before. With such fluctuations, especially during the WSOP, we checked and double checked to make sure that the numbers were the same. They were! There were 7,309 players in the Sunday Million this week, and when the $200 + $15 buy-ins were added up and Stars kicked in a bit of cash, the prize pool met its $1,500,000 guarantee. That allowed the final 1,080 players to be paid, but the final two players, after coming to a chop agreement for the prize money, played out until redsfan9 won and collected nearly $215K for it.

1st place:    redsfan9 ($214,804.12)
2nd place:    kiaser ($175,750.88)
3rd place:    tytkto ($120,000.00)
4th place:    DooM_DaYs ($79,500.00)
5th place:    a$$ou ($61,500.00)
6th place:    7starr ($46,500.00)
7th place:    4ikunkoff ($32,250.00)
8th place:    pollyhan ($18,000.00)
9th place:    gorzoni ($11,625.00)

Sunday 500
One of the few tournaments that held steady this week was the Sunday 500, which was the high-stakes offering of the week. For $500 + $30, players could buy-in to the $500K guarantee, and this week saw 969 players do just that. Though it didn’t make the guarantee, PokerStars kicked in some money to bring that prize pool to $500K and give the players an overlay. The top 144 players cashed in the tournament, but it was yoshi-jp who ended up beating terrific28 to win it and grab more than $87K in first place money.

1st place:    yoshi-jp ($87,400.00)
2nd place:    terrific28 ($63,500.00)
3rd place:    All_in_at420 ($47,500.00)
4th place:    vilela2255 ($35,500.00)
5th place:    Gags30 ($25,000.00)
6th place:    I Spew Chips ($20,000.00)
7th place:    tony82446333 ($15,000.00)
8th place:    respect82 ($10,000.00)
9th place:    goodvibe1 ($5,750.00)

Sunday 2nd Chance

The last chance for players to compete in a major Sunday tournament came via the Second Chance event, which offered a $250K guarantee for $200 + $15 to end the night. This week saw a small jump in attendance, as 1,341 players registered and created a $268,200 prize pool. That allowed the last 153 players to find extra money in their accounts once the tournament was over, but it was up to the last two players, who incidentally made a near-even chop agreement before playing it out. Ultimately, nicelife beat ynd! to win the title along with more than $42K in prize money.

1st place:    nicelife ($42,058.76)
2nd place:    ynd! ($42,048.76)
3rd place:    WatchOutFish ($26,820.00)
4th place:    iammojay ($20,115.00)
5th place:    Mr Brizza ($14,080.50)
6th place:    DeuceBuster ($11,398.50)
7th place:    marcimausi ($8,716.50)
8th place:    Coop97 ($6,034.50)
9th place:    C0DE ACES ($3,754.80)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

Sundays always jump off with the Sunday Brawl, a $240 + $16 bounty tournament that places $40 on the head of each player. The excitement of those bounties, in addition to the $400K guarantee, makes the Brawl a player favorite. This week saw a dip in attendance by a few hundred players, but with 2,268 of them, there was still enough to surpass the guarantee and make for a $453,600 prize pool. The top 234 players were able to cash out from that money, but BlackFours went all the way to the end, and by defeating Supra1988T, BlackFours won more than $92K and the weekly title.

1st place:    BlackFours ($92,511.72)
2nd place:    Supra1988T ($59,875.20)
3rd place:    carmit ($44,452.80)
4th place:    ChuckSty ($33,566.40)
5th place:    Spiderweb80 ($23,587.20)
6th place:    Scary_Tiger ($15,422.40)
7th place:    bsu123 ($10,432.80)
8th place:    THUGer ($7,257.60)
9th place:    kyriasialiolios ($5,433.20)

$750K Guarantee
As usual, the $750K Guarantee on Full Tilt was the last of all the Sunday majors to finish. This week, the registration number was down only slightly as compared to other tournaments and sites, and the 3,205-player field, combined with their $200 + $16 buy-ins, created a prize pool that needed a little help from Full Tilt to make the $750K guarantee. That allowed 522 players to be paid, and the ultimate winner, SEDOS, took home nearly $133 for defeating czarcaesarxx in the final match of the game.

1st place:    SEDOS ($132,787.50)
2nd place:    czarcaesarxx ($80,250.00)
3rd place:    zoonie824 ($52,500.00)
4th place:    mendieta19 ($41,400.00)
5th place:    AustinKay7 ($31,050.00)
6th place:    savage23z ($23,025.00)
7th place:    AceJai ($17,250.00)
8th place:    TBONE4LIFE87 ($13,500.00)
9th place:    risk2Dupside ($10,050.00)

The Sunday Mulligan

After a downswing last week, the Mulligan was back on par with rising registration, as the $200 + $16 buy-in tournament found 1,191 players interested in the $200K guarantee. Those numbers created a $238,200 prize pool for the players, though only the top 135 of them would find any of it deposited back to their accounts. The last three players came to a chop agreement, but the final card that was dealt showed that SteamCleaner was able to defeat SqueezePlease to grab the $38K first place prize.

1st place:    SteamCleaner ($38,212.58)
2nd place:    SqueezePleaes ($37,509.56)
3rd place:    Alkopoker ($34,147.61)
4th place:    BRiha5254 ($19,353.75)
5th place:    NeillyJQ ($14,601.66)
6th place:    Markus OwnH ($10,719.00)
7th place:    nickyluvshu ($6,907.80)
8th place:    EASY DZER ($5,002.20)
9th place:    UAanessaHudgens ($3,573.00)

$200K Double Deuce
The strange phenomenon continues. The Double Deuce is one of the best buys on the internet, offering a $200K guarantee for only $20 + $2, but despite the offer that benefits low limit players, many of them who cannot make it to the WSOP or afford an event there, fewer of them played in it again this week…more than 800 fewer this week. The 9,043-player field did create an overlay for them, though, as Full Tilt kicked in a few dollars to make the prize pool an even $200K. And that allowed 1,350 players to be paid, with the first place money of $31K going to theox001 for defeating lepa1 to end the tournament.

1st place:    theox001 ($31,000.00)
2nd place:    lepa1 ($($21,000.00)
3rd place:    shawnslc ($14,800.00)
4th place:    Umca ($10,640.00)
5th place:    CenTraVac ($7,800.00)
6th place:    Fabio_Bitt ($5,600.00)
7th place:    smalls5124 ($4,000.00)
8th place:    Bill Adama ($2,860.00)
9th place:    Pellefaanten ($2,022.00)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

The months that the $200K Guaranteed on UltimateBet exceeded 1,000 players each week are gone, at least for the duration of the WSOP, it seems. This week saw another dip in registration, as only 889 players signed up for the event. But that number also gave those players an overlay when UB kicked in money for the prize pool, which should be incentive for more players to come to the tables in coming weeks. The top 81 players did receive payment at the end of the night, and YABOYSTU was able to defeat VERTIGO111 to conclude the tournament and take home almost $46K for the win.

1st place:    YABOYSTU ($45,700.00)
2nd place:    VERTIGO111 ($28,200.00)
3rd place:    FACEYMCGEE ($18,500.00)
4th place:    DECKDEVA ($13,000.00)
5th place:    SOUTHCJAY7 ($11,000.00)
6th place:    HAMMER_U ($9,000.00)
7th place:    ELFUEGO1111 ($7,000.00)
8th place:    DUPPYKONKARA ($5,000.00)
9th place:    REBUYSEXUAL ($3,500.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The big tournament of the Bodog Sunday is always the $100K Guaranteed, where its $150 + $12 buy-in offers that $100K in prize money and players can be assured of an overlay each and every week. The registration number seems to have found its norm as it’s going to be during the WSOP, as the 540 players this week was only three from the number last week. Again, an overlay gave players a bit of extra incentive to cash, and the top 63 players did so. The final table played out with whadayagot1 and illcallyou going heads-up, only to find the former able to take it down and collect $25K for the feat.

1st place:    whadayagot1 ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    illcallyou ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    fogitup ($9,500.00)
4th place:    letmewin_thx ($7,000.00)
5th place:    redman7027 ($5,500.00)
6th place:    p0cket00 ($4,500.00)
7th place:    Droeftoeter ($3,500.00)
8th place:    quietwinner ($2,200.00)
9th place:    Tcrowley ($1,700.00)
